Trent Baalke Says San Francisco 49ers ‘Concerned’ By Flood of Arrests

As it currently stands, Ray McDonald will be taking the field in the San Francisco 49ers first ever game at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday, as general manager Trent Baalke confirmed in an interview with Damon Bruce on 95.7 The Game.

“We continue to support that decision,” said Baalke of the team’s support of the defensive lineman who was arrested on a domestic violence charge over Labor Day weekend.

Bruce asked Baalke if he and CEO Jed York were embarrassed that the 49ers have led the NFL in arrests since 2010.

“I don’t know if embarrassed is the right word. We’re certainly concerned. You know, it’s disturbing and at the same point, you know, it’s not 53 players. And I think we have to remember that. We have to remember that there’s certain guys that have to do things a little bit better and be more conscious of the decisions that they make.”

Bruce then pressed Baalke on just what exactly the 49er way is, a phrase that head coach Jim Harabugh often refers to.

“Well, I think the 49er way is to do things the right way.”

“Our standards are high.”

“I can assure that we are concerned. This has become a distraction and it’s something that we’re working awfully hard internally to get corrected.”
